Obviously, it was not meant to happen.
Last Wednesday I had son #2 rush me to the ER with awful stomach pains that I had been fighting all day. They admitted me with a blockage in my intestine! Ugh. Had to have an NG tube down my nose to drain the fluid/bile (sorry!) that was building up due to the blockage. I will spare any further details, but that NG tube was nasty and archaic. If you ever do have to have one, ask for the kid sized tube. After me screaming and the nurse trying twice, she finally asked for the kid size. They told me it would be "uncomfortable, but not painful," they lied. It was pure pain, and I have a fairly high pain tolerance. Anyway, 4 days in the hospital and the blockage is still unexplained. But, I'm better. Will see a Gastro doctor next month and maybe get some answers.
I do wonder if stress can cause this type of blockage. That would make sense to me.
So, son #1 did come visit in the hospital- that was a surprise! I cried when he walked in, I was so happy to see him. He cried too. Nothing really new, but we were happy to see him. He actually looked pretty good. We kept the conversation "normal."
I cried as he was getting ready to leave. I held his face in my hands, looked him in the eyes and told him that I love him so much and that I am here for him whenever he needs me. I told him that I don't EVER want him to feel alone or unloved. He cried again too.
Gosh, I didn't want to let him go.....
